Unspeakable compromise

Art meets office life.

Looking for an escape from the nine-to-five grind? You won’t find it at this Vancouver art exhibition. Curated by Barb Choit and presented by Or Gallery, The Unspeakable Compromise of the Portable Work has commandeered an actual office suite, turning its fluorescent-lit, industrial-carpeted blandness into the backdrop for a series of evolving installations by Vancouver- and New York-based artists. We hope it’s cheerier than it sounds.
